Video of the Week: Making better batteries with metal oxide & graphene composites at PNNL

By / March 9, 2011

This video explains one route researchers at Pacific Northwest National Lab and Princeton are taking to create better materials for batteries: materials that assemble on their own into durable nanocomposites. Details are also provided about surfactants used in conjunction with tin oxide and functionalized graphene. The video features interviews with PNNL researcher Jun Liu and Princeton’s…

Video of the week: Lithium ions cause nanowires to writhe, swell and twist

By / December 10, 2010

[flash https://ceramics.org/ceramictechtoday/wp-content/video/lithium_ion_nanowire.flv mode=1 f={image=/ceramictechtoday/wp-content/video/lithium_ion_nanowire.jpg}] Some lithium ion batteries are plagued with, well, physical problems. Some of the mechanical effects are manifest as batteries that get very hot. Others swell, especially when overcharged, as has been noted by many authors (see here, for example). But seldom has the physical effects of lithium ion movement been demonstrated…
